5K / 10K / 21K

The Run4Reforestation is the main source of income for Zomba TREEZ 

Funds raised each year go towards afforestation, fire prevention, sports sponsorship (in exchange for conservation efforts), environmental awareness and soon, green energy. 

We can't do this without you!

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE RUN:

This year, like last year, we will be organizing a virtual run which people can partake in wherever they are in the world.  

There will be 3 different race distances: a 5km,  a 10km and 21km.

Instead of paying a registration fee at the event on the day, we kindly ask that runners donate to the TREEZ JustGiving page, or even better, do their own fundraising to help TREEZ continue with its conservation work

 

It will be fun :)

WE DID IT!!

You ran all over the world, from Australia to Alaska, from Ghana to South Africa, in the heat, in the cold, in your living room, in your local park, on treadmills etc. You all did an AMAZING job and we thank you for your efforts.

I ran my second ever 21km distance and did not feel particularly thankful to Adrian who set the Plateau courses. The uphill up the Potato Path was brutal! I admit to slowing to a walk for the last third. The steep downhill towards the Mulunguzi dam was equally hard but this time on my knees - and then my will power to finish was very nearly sapped out of me by the last kilometer of slight up hill right before the end. Mike and Pete who ran with me, got me through and mentally dragged me those last few hundred meters. What a joy to be greeted by Filly, Caitlin, Kate and a few of the curio sellers, cheering us on :) Not sure I will be able to do the same this year, but I can but try :)

CAN WE DO IT AGAIN???

YES WE CAN!
